We only lost about 12 hours hiding from the weather. Recently we have
been sampling in the vicinity of Elephant Island where Shackleton and
his crew were stranded for a while. The island is something to behold--
beautiful but forbidding. Yesterday we passed about a hundred meters
from a majestic iceberg which I estimate to be about 0.5 x 0.3 miles
from the radar. The iceberg towered over the ship and almost everyone
who was awake was on deck taking photos. Hopefully some of them will do
it justice.
